If One Direction’s Niall Horan is ever looking for a career move, he may be able to fall back on tennis and call on new friend Novak Djokovic for some pointers.

The Mullingar heart throb was lucky enough to take part in a practice game with the world number one ahead of the Rogers Cup in Toronto on Saturday.

Horan was sure to let his fans get a sneak peak of their court session by tweeting a photo of them on court and then uploading an Instagram picture of them hanging out in the changing room.

He said: “Incredible experience! Got the opportunity to hit some balls with my bro @DjokerNole today! Thank you so much dude.”

“I was terrible! But was an amazing experience to play with the number 1 tennis player in the world! Just incredible!

“Thank you to all of you guys (fans), coz if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be able to do amazing stuff like that.”
